Episode 6 – Simple Machines Part 1

In this episode we will discuss simple machines and the concept trading distance for force to get the same work completed.  Work is defined in physics as Force X Distance.  Often it is advantageous to use less force over a greater distance to accomplish work that could not be done otherwise.  Simple machines are designed to do just that.

The three simple machines discussed are: an incline plane (ramp), a lever, and a wedge.  In addition, three types of levers are described.   Throughout this talk many examples are used of everyday tools to show how these machines are used.
